Firstly I want to thank the person who put together this montage. The pictures thundered through me, the music was a little off putting and the pictures cycled a bit quick but, there were so many pictures that I understand that to go slower would drag on, but I took the time to pause at each picture and stare, and project myself into the person depicted, to feel his/her feelings there thoughts. What hit me most was the children, I have two children and the pictures snatched the oxygen from my lungs, Burned, DEAD!, wounded, missing limbs, tears, such innocent angels should not be involved in such times. It angers me to read such uneducated, emotionless, statements made by critics who obviously have not experienced the war in Iraq on a personal level, even the soldiers that come home from Iraq say that this war is ragged with the wrong intentions. There not they're for freedom! 'War Demond', the name says it all, before you make such powerful statements again, maybe you should open your mind to the whole perspective and research a little more into the views on this site and others. It sounds to me like you want to be on the back of a tank in Iraq yourself, think yourself lucky that your not.

For more info about the True Face of USarmy
It was a classic pincer manuever, we were already in Afghanistan and Iran is next, now we have them surrounded. Anyone who does not understand that and thought for a minute there was any other real reason to go there is fooling themselves. Now it's time to pull out and drop nukes and stop thinking the rest of the world is as capable of working towards a better future as we are. I am tired of being the one that comes to everyone's rescue. Bring the troops home, put them on the mexican and canadian borders and stick to air strikes and cruise missiles when it comes to diplomacy. Get our asses off of fossil fuels and we can do surgical strikes as needed.
UPDATE. If it was a colony we would be moving our civillians in to live there.

Ugly Truth We Must Face: Looting the World Require Attrocity
This film makes the point that to accumulate loot on a massive scale, it is indispensible to kill on a massive scale using weapons + structural violence like comprehensive sanctions.
If you are serious, not just glib, read any of Dr. Chalmers Johnson's trilogy:
THE SORROWS OF EMPIRE
NEMESIS: THE END OF THE AMERICAN REPUBLIC.
Johnson is a former spear carrier for the CIA.

Not oil, no
Of course the war in Iraq is not about oil. It's to liberate the Iraqi people. I think. Or was it the weapons of mass destruction?.. no, there weren't any of those... Oh, I remember, it was because Saddam helped bin Laden plan 9/11... oh, wait, that didn't happen either... yeah, it was to liberate the Iraqi people, just like Bush (eventually) said. Just ask 'em how liberated they feel! And it makes America safer because... uh, it liberates the Iraqi people.... and everyone appreciates us doing it... yeah, that's it.

The truth realllly hurts
This is just sick, crazy, nuts, junk, and to say it is anything but is not only uniformed but lacking any thing dealing with the real world.
Lest start off.
1. The US, and UN had a little war with Iraq after it took another country. Now Iraq just so happen to have missed a few payments on money it had got from that little country to pay for the attack on another country that was much larger.
2. As all this was going on and the uninformed people of the US did little more then get upset about why no one was doing more for them, and how very mean the US , and it's troops are (Those Guys that Gave you the very Freedoms you miss use all the time). Also not knowing that the US and those very same troops not only made Europe, and Asia free, but help bring out those misguild people from that Asian country we kept free for over 20 years (South Viet Nam people, the one that only had the mind to fall after the full army of the north attack- NO VC it was all NVA), and the fact that after the fall millions died, not only in Veit Nam (no they had to do more) but in four other countries as well.
Next As we are on the subject What does the US have that we took in the last 110 Years? Last time I checked all of that is now free nations, or has no wish to not be part of the US. Did I miss something. France? Italy? Germany? Japan? The Philippines Islands (No we Freed them 2 times in fact. Once from Spain, and the Other from Japan), South Korea (No in fact that is still an on going UN War FYI and the US has Been Keeping the Peace).
OK Now lets go back to Iraq. Iraq BTW last it's first war with the US,UK, and a little help from some others. BUT they did happen to not only break every part of the peace, attack, and kill US troops, and shoot at not only our, but the UKs UN mission planes, and a bunch of other stuff. Last time I checked one Party was saying over, and over again how the US should have taken Iraq the first time (You know the time part of the Congress did not say it was ok to go into Iraq, just free them other guys).
War, and the Mid East are not nice things many times. This issue with that Area , and those that wish harm on ALL free people will not go away just by acting as if it was not there. You do happen to recall 911. The Leaders of Iraq only had to say that they did not wish war with the US, and they would not have had the war that they asked for both times.
Today Hezbollah for the 10th day attacked, and some nutcases from the US congress think the IDF should just sit there, and say "Bad, Bad Hezbollah "
Ya -- for all of you that act as if the UK, and US just made this up for fun, send $9.95 to
"I Reallllly care about Peace"
1700 Pennsylvania Ave NW, Washington, DC 20006
For you Free Internet link to this movie, and how to reallly help out as a Human Sheild protecting Iraq's kids from those very, very bad people.
As for the nut that said something about troops coming back saying it is wrong. In your dreams little man, in your dreams. Black Hawk down was not just a bad day!

I agree with War Demon
As a trainer of American personnel to prevent accidents that you are talking about, one would think that I would be insulted. Not at all! I think whoever puts out the drivel that Americans are trying to colonize the Middle East and think all we should do is hide are insulting themselves. The actions taken in Iraq are not about oil. It's easy to think that way because so much is done in secret. We are watching out for ourselves, yes... But we are saving the world. Here is my one star to bring the rating down to where this flick should be. No sane person is a pacifist when something (or someone) he loves is terrorized.

The truth hurts...
which is why the chickenhawks like "War Demon" raise hell about productions like this. Calling the artists cowards, while ignoring the fact that so many veterans of the debacle in Iraq have come back vocally opposed to the oil-hungry adventurism that squadered their lives along with those of innocent Iraqi noncombatants. Well, talk's cheap, and it's the cowards who sit back in safety slinging mud. We'll see when "War Demon" volunteers for harm's way. Buck, buck, buck, buckaw.
A pretty grisly production that reveals the consequences of chickenhawk brutality unleashed on the world by a president who, along with most of his administration, evaded service in his generation's slaughter. You won't want to see most of these images, but you need to.
First off I gave this crap one star only because there isn't a lower rating...That said I ask again...Are you kidding? You're seriously comparing a massacre by the U.S. Army in the 1800's to the war in Iraq? Why don't retards like you protest what Saddam did to his own people instead? Maybe you think we shouldn't have gone to war with Germany during WWII either...This video is vicious propaganda to further your un-educated opinion of what is happening in Iraq. NO, we are not there to hunt down & kill innocent civilians & NO, we are not there for oil!! I wouldn't be surprised if the corpse images were mostly victims of Iraqi vs. Iraqi!
These men fight & die doing a job that cowards like you couldn't do in order to provide you with the freedoms to spit in their face!! Hippies like you need to go do a tour with some of these honorable men & women and maybe then you will realize just how full of shit this piece of crap really is!!
